44th German Conference on Artificial Intelligence, September 27 – Oct 1, 2021: Virtual Conference
KI2021 takes place in Berlin, Germany, September 27 – October 1, 2021. KI2021 is the 44th edition of the German conference on Artificial Intelligence (abbreviated KI for “Künstliche Intelligenz”) organized in cooperation with the Fachbereich Künstliche Intelligenz der Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI-SIG AI). The technical program of presentations, workshops, and tutorials is complemented by an early career research consortium.
The early career research consortium provides young researchers from any subject area within AI with the opportunity to present their ideas and receive feedback at an early stage of at their scientific work. In contrast to previous editions, we also invite young researchers to present their research and connect with new researchers.
The early career research consortium also provides an opportunity for young researchers to discuss their research interests and career objectives with established researchers in AI and network with other participants. The young researchers consortium will expose students to different areas of research within AI and help build professional connections within the international community of AI researchers.
The goals of the young researchers consortium are:
There will be an early career research workshop with a keynote and oral presentations during the KI conference, providing an opportunity for obtaining feedback. The schedule of the meetings will be announced ahead of the event. The organizers plan to publish extended abstracts as proceedings of the young researchers workshop, either as part of the main conference proceedings or with CEUR (pending).
Additionally, there will be the opportunity to participate in the main conference poster session where the participants will have the chance to present their research to a larger audience.
To apply for the KI2021 early career research consortium, please submit the following documents (in a single pdf file) to the EasyChair submission system no later than July 30, 2021 (extended from June 18, 2021).
The extended abstract could be structured in the following way:
Abstract submissions should be in English and must have a single author who is pursuing the proposed PhD.
